Council Tax discounts
Residents in care homes, certain hostels or long term hospital patients
If a person who normally lives at your address is now living in a residential care home, hospital or certain type of hostel, and is not intending to return home, you may be eligible for a Council Tax discount.
If nobody else lives at the address, you may be eligible for an exemption (so there will be no Council Tax to pay at all).
Apply for a discount or exemption
- Call the 24 hour form request hotline 0161 770 3915
- Or pick up a form from the Council Tax Team at Access Oldham
If your bill indicates that a discount has been allowed, you must tell the Council of any change of circumstance which affects your entitlement within 21 days. If you fail to do so you may be required to pay a penalty.
